The Office of Innovation leads NARA’s efforts to create innovative ways to serve its customers and to increase access to and delivery of records through all forms of media. Its mission includes demonstrating leadership in the archival and information access field. The Office oversees the National Archives’ Open Government and Digital Government Strategy efforts, the online public catalog, digitization strategy and partnerships, the National Archives’ web and social media presence, the Innovation Hub, and the Citizen Archivist Initiative. In support these efforts, the Office runs and coordinates the Internal Collaboration Network; the description program; agency business architecture; metadata standards and authorities; internal digitization labs; intranet; and social media programs.
The Office of Innovation is led by the Chief Innovation Officer and consists of the Digitization Division; the Digital Engagement Division; the Innovation Hub; Business Architecture, Standards, and Authorities Division; and the Project Management Division.
